Former Atlanta Falcons linebacker Barkevious Mingo was charged with indecency with sexual contact with a child last week and details of his arrest surfaced on Sunday.
Mingo allegedly shot a teenager’s underwear in a Texas hotel room in 2019, according to Sports Illustrated, citing an Arlington police warrant.

Police said Mingo took a teenage family member and the alleged victim to an amusement park and go-cart track over the weekend of July 4. Mingo also allegedly took the boys to a steakhouse and bought them clothes at a Nike store before returning to a hotel room where he was staying.
Police said the professional football player pulled on the victim’s underwear and became more aggressive.
“The victim said when this happened he was scared and pretended to be asleep,” the warrant said. He then allegedly attempted to have sex with the victim.
Mingo was still with the Seattle Seahawks at the time and was traded to the Houston Texans later in September.
